Clarins new foaming cleansers

As gentle as cleansing milk and as effective as soap, Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser ( for Dry & Sensitive skin ) has been fortified with Gypsophila extract, Shea Butter & Pro-Vitamin B5 to meet the needs of dry or sensitive skin.

This gentle cleanser is delicately perfumed ( smell really delicious, kind of like gourmet ), minimally foaming, rinsed off easily ( but not residue free ). It leaves a moisturizing film that makes the skin smooth & silky.

Gentle Foaming cleanser ( Normal & Combination ) is a superbly foaming cleanser that rinsed off completely, leaving the complexion refreshed. I absolutely adore the dense, luxurious foams and it doesn’t dry out my skin; despite the deep cleansing sensation. It contains cottonseed extract to soften the skin.

Gentle Foaming cleanser ( Combination or Oily ) is foamy, but not as densely foaming as the normal version. The so called purifying microbeads are annoying as they are not dense enough, not polishing enough to do anything ( you probably get 5 beads per wash ). It doesn’t rinsed off completely nor it controls sebum secretion. Tamarind extract was added for refining properties.  My skin is not any brighter or mattier  after washing with this, although it degreases effectively.

In my opinion, the normal or combination skin version is the best, and i like the fragrance of the dry skin version most.
